Thumbs up

That looks to be an early style frame. The neck is the same as '72 and earlier frames and NO reinforcement supports in the seat area. Also, thank you for taking off the fat bob gas tanks. My first Sportster was a new '73 XLCH.

A famous alum of U of I, as well as Sandpoint High School, was a fella named Jerry Kramer. Just inducted into the Hall of Fame here a few months ago. He's quite the hero around here, in fact they're debating naming a Sandpoint street after him. Half the people in this town are Packers fans and the other half Seahawk fans. Makes for some real interesting cheering at the local pubs when those two teams play each other.

Interesting! I have wondered a bit whether the frame is entirely stock. It does have a 1973 VIN on the steering head.

Some previous owner really botched the install of those fat bob tanks. They had added a bracket (which I ground off). Half the welds were broken. The tanks were held together at the bottom with string.
